iNEMI Tech Topic Series Eco-Design for Circular Electronics Economy

Session 4: Thursday, September 9, 2021
Featuring Fronius and IBM
Join us for the next webinar in iNEMI’s Eco-Design series to learn how Fronius and IBM are using eco-design principles to minimize the environmental impact of their products and services.
Fronius: David Schönmayr, Program Lead for Sustainability 
In this presentation David Schönmayr will share information about how Fronius defines product sustainability and circularity, how the company measures sustainability, what Fronius has achieved to date, and what is planned for further improving the sustainability and circularity of their products.
IBM: Maxwell Giammona, Lead Scientist, heavy-metal free battery research 
The energy storage group at IBM’s Almaden Research Center is focused on combining conventional and AI-assisted research methods to develop safer, more sustainable, and higher performance batteries for applications that include smartphones, computers and vehicles. Maxwell Giammona will discuss the company’s recently developed, completely heavy-metal-free cathode chemistry based on iodine conversion rather than lithium-ion interaction. He will talk about the fundamental mechanisms of this new battery chemistry and how it compares to lithium-ion in terms of recyclability and sustainability.
This webinar is open to industry; advance registration is required. For additional information, contact Mark Schaffer (marks@inemi.org).
